Join the Editorial Committee: Help us share Nova Scotia’s social work stories

Over the last few tears the College’s editorial committee has worked to develop Connection magazine into a professional publication that illuminates the essential role social workers play in our province. In its pages, Connection shares social work research, considers ethical challenges social workers may face in their practice, and showcases the many services our members provide that support Nova Scotians to lead healthier, happier lives.

Take part in Connection

The editorial committee is open to new members. We’re looking for social workers who:

  • are “in the loop” on social work research and news;
  • have experience writing or editing, or a strong interest in storytelling about the topics most often featured in Connection (e.g. social justice, social policy, anti-racism, ethics, private practice, social work research, the strengths of diverse communities, and more);
  • want to help your College educate and connect with a broader audience to generate support for the profession; and
  • are willing to dedicate your time to help bring this magazine to life.

We need your social work lens to guide the magazine content, and your networking skills to help us connect with social workers in our communities who have great stories to share.

Volunteering for committees is also a professional development activity; members can track these hours and apply them towards annual registration renewal. The time commitment for the editorial committee is around 2 hours per issue. The editorial committee works closely with College staff to create three issues of Connection a year..

Interested? Apply today!
